Junior Hurling All Ireland Final 1976 Louth Vs Mayo

(Oldest Posts First)

I'm trying to find a match report for this game for my Dad (Aidan Byrne) who played midfield for Louth on the day and has never gotten to read a report on the game.

Fair play,

You may have already done this but if it were me I'd start with the local papers in Mayo and Louth.

They may have archives you can look at.

You've probably seen this one already, but here's a GAA archives website that has details on the match, if not a match report.
From what I can see they have a page that gives the score and panels: https://www.gaaarchives.com/match-search/?cmd=match-details&match-id=14990

And each player in the panel has a link to a page with all the matches they believe they played in, including your Dad: https://www.gaaarchives.com/search-results/?cmd=quick-player&pid=127103

Those pages aren't match reports, but if they have that info, there's a good chance they might have access to match reports where they got that info from, so they might be worth contacting. It's hard to tell if the site is being maintained anymore, but they have contact info there, so it might be worth a shot.

In any case, good luck with it, I hope something turns up.
